Days of '47 Parade

Colorful floats, bands, horses, clowns and other entries thrill thousands of spectators each year. Many families camp out on the streets the night before to ensure a great seat to catch it all the following morning. The Parade starts at State Street and South Temple.

We encourage you to join us for a wonderful morning of excitement and colorful entries in our much-loved Parade.  During early June, check back to view a list of the parade entries in the order they will appear.

Remember that businesses are in operation and residents live along the Parade route.  Please respect their property!  Let them get some sleep if you’re camping overnight nearby and be sure to pick up trash and remove all your camping gear (like that sofa or mattress that is headed to the dump!) on Thursday morning before you leave the area.

Here’s another grand idea for you!  After the Parade, mosey on over to the EnergySolutions Arena where our Rodeo will be getting underway.  This is a return of the decades-old tradition of the Rodeo and Parade in downtown Salt Lake.  Don’t miss our bronco-bustin’ action!

Come discover the fascinating story of how humans have shaped the horse and how the horse, in turn has shaped us.
The Natural History Museum of Utah and Wells Fargo will present several programs during the exhibition’s opening week:
• Build a Horse
• Horse Evolution
• From the Horses Mouth: Meet horse-related experts and interact with tools of their trade!
The Horse Exhibition Gallery Tours: Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday
This special exhibition includes cultural objects from around the world, a hand-painted diorama depicting the evolution of the horse and interactives that invite you to test your strength in horsepower, identify different breeds and peek inside a life-size, moving horse. Horses are integral to our history and touch us as individuals. Celebrate our bond with these magnificent creatures!
In addition, explore one of Utah’s most important horse stories – the connection of the Ute people to horses. The Ute were among the first North American tribes to acquire horses from the Spanish in the 1600s. Discover how horses transformed Ute life in ways that continue to reverberate today.

Outdoor Concert Series: Santana

Long before the category known as “World Music” was named, Santana’s ever-evolving sound was always ahead of its time in its universal appeal.

More than 40 years and almost as many albums later, Santana has sold more than 100 million records and has won ten Grammy Awards, including a record-breaking nine for 1999’s Album of the Year, Supernatural. Santana’s 2012 album Shape Shifter debuted at #16 on theBillboard Top 200, and their forthcoming album, Corazón, Santana’s first Latin music album, features collaborations with various artists including Gloria Estefan, Ziggy Marley, Cindy Blackman Santana, Wayne Shorter, and Diego Torres.

Airline earns second consecutive win, sweeps all 10 categories

ATLANTA, Nov. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Corporate travel managers again rated Delta Air Lines No. 1 in this year's Business Travel News Annual Airline Survey. The airline ranked first among all carriers in key categories including: Value of Relationships with Account Managers and Sales Representatives; Distribution Channels; Complaint/ Problem Resolution; Quality of Customer Service; and Networks, Airline Partnerships and Frequencies.
